“Not to be missed!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This is one of my favorite memorials to visit. The best time is early morning or at sunset. It is peaceful, typically not too crowded and offers a beautiful view. This is one of the top memorials in DC not to miss.

“Beautiful memorial”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I have heard this is even more beautiful at night but only saw it during the day. It was still very impressive and a lovely walk along the river.
